Are you interested in helping to shape and develop the next generation of Foresters?
We are seeking to recruit an Apprenticeship Link Tutor to support the delivery of our innovative new Professional Forester Degree Apprenticeship.
Being dynamic, highly motivated with strong communication, organisational and networking skills, you will be passionate about Forestry and have the ability to foster a culture of progression with our work based learning apprenticeships that generates recognition, respect and engagement from our employer partners.
You should have a relevant first and/or higher degree and industry experience. Teaching experience is not essential but you should have a desire and the skills to support the education and training of others. If you are new to HE teaching, the University offers the opportunity to study a PgC in Learning and Teaching for Higher Education.
The University of Cumbria is home to the National School of Forestry which has been delivering applied professional forestry courses for over 50 years and has a growing portfolio of research and knowledge exchange projects with colleagues in the wider Institute. We have strong links to the sector and its professional body, the Institute of Chartered Foresters.
You will join our forestry team which comprises a combination of forestry academics and those with a more professional forest management background, enabling us to blend theory and real world application throughout our provision.
Based at our Ambleside campus, you and the forestry team will work closely with colleagues in Conservation, Geography and Outdoor Education. Our location in the heart of the Lake District gives us easy access to a wealth of field sites for practical teaching including the University’s own area of semi-natural woodland.
